I just called Patty Murray's office to ask her why she is asking for everyone to send her their personal health care stories when she only wants the stories that specifically support her position in the health care debate. Her staffer asked if I, and others, had been sending them in, and I responded, yes. To which the aid told me not to worry because that meant she had received the stories. I clarified and said, the problem is she doesn't use any of them. When she makes speeches on the Senate floor she only uses the stories that back up her already made up mind, and it is misleading. Why even bother asking for everyone's stories, why not just be honest and ask for stories that support the argument for government intrusion? I asked her to tell the Senator that she needs to start using stories with opposing viewpoints if she wants to maintain any integrity or credibility.
Want to call and do the same thing?? Contact Murray here.
FYI - I called the Cowlitz County Expo Center and they confirmed that the meeing scheduled for today has been CANCELED.
